    I really like Paradron Medic, I'm really glad she's getting made. I don't think I'll be able to sub just for her though.

    If anyone is planning to sub but isn't interested in PM I'm happy to buy her.

    it helps with the headache if you think of him as a pretender reformatted binaltech optimus in laser prime colors.

    I'd love to see a retool of Maketoys' Trash Talk with that Optimus design.

    Well now that there's a reason for the Pretender bot to be Prime, I'm on board. It's neat that people who wanted this deco are getting what they wanted. I would have much preferred the comic appearance look. Still, the Botcon version was my favorite of that set. I'm sure I'll enjoy this just as much. Hopefully the arms are tweaked a bit to not be quite so loose. The medic is cool and about as overdue as Arcee was. Glad to see that. My only complaint would be Quickslinger. I wish she'd been the Chromia mold since she was previously a cycle alt mode.

    I guess I had assumed that the bonus would be a legends gun

    I know the shell is an homage to the canceled prototype, but for maximum trolling they should have made it an Optimal Optimus deco.

    Totally is...

    YES! Love that movie.

    I'm 99% sure they said the last figure in the set would be a CW Deluxe toy... Something that Karl Hartman has wanted to do for a long time.

    I'm telling you, they need to repaint this new Optimus as a pre-Beast Wars II Lio Convoy.

    Agreed, I'd have preferred the Chromia mold as well for Quickslinger...

    i think the most fascinating thing about Swervimus Prime is he's got the Legends Prime gun mold ~ i'd have thought that'd have been on a shared sprue.

    Now you've done it. Their next TFCC 5.0 reveal will be Alpha Trion's Lion mode as Tigatron transforming into BW Wolfang's bot mode.

    wait... you guys would have preferred the weapon was a deluxe mold instead? Or did you mean that they should've just done Quickslinger as her own figure?

    and the bigger gun is from Orion Pax, so they're obviously able to get weapons from different molds... OR they'll be using those molds in this set as well, and just snagging the weapons from them for this guy.
